Introducing the Soft Melody Sultanabad Indian Rug from our collection, a true masterpiece of tradition, craftsmanship, and innovation. Handwoven by artisans in and around Agra, India, this rug captures the essence of centuries-old practices.

The Soft Melody rug boasts a luxurious blend of imported, long-staple New Zealand wool (comprising 50-75% of the blend) and superior local or South African wool. This unique composition results in a shinier, more lustrous finish compared to rugs made solely from local wools. The imported New Zealand wool is meticulously hand-carded and hand-spun into yarn, contributing to the economic sustainability of the local craft.

Distinguishing itself from other rugs, the Soft Melody rug features single-ply yarns. Each knot incorporates a single thread, creating a thicker, denser, and substantially heavier yarn. This, combined with the use of an asymmetrical Persian-type knot, results in a denser, nubbier texture with knots that are visibly pronounced, enhancing the rug's tactile and visual appeal.

Renowned for its 6x6 quality, the Soft Melody rug showcases intricate craftsmanship, providing robustness and intricate design clarity. With a 100% wool pile and cotton foundations, tightly spun cotton warps, and mostly double-wefted construction, this rug has a pile height of approximately 3/8 inch. The handspun nature of the yarn contributes to subtle color variations, making each rug unique.

Color longevity is another highlight of the Soft Melody rug. Employing high-quality chromium dyes, primarily imported from Switzerland, this rug resists fading and maintains its vibrant hues over time. Unlike rugs using inferior synthetic dyes, these chromium dyes ensure a lasting, light-fast quality.

Embrace the heritage and artistry of the Soft Melody Sultanabad Indian Rug, a true testament to the skill and dedication of the artisans behind its creation.
